It looks like nothing much from outside...but once through the door it's easy to see this is a quality food restaurant. Excellent service and the best surprise find. Recommended

We chose this restaurant based on reviews and we were not disappointed. It was our best meal during our entire honeymoon. The pasta is delicious! We had a duck tagliatelle and a stuffed ravioli. The tiramisu is to die for. We also had a wonderful bottle of Amorone Filipini that was recommended by the server. Order it, you can't find... More

We saved this restaurant for our last night in Venice and were glad we did. It is a beautiful little family-owned place tucked in a small canal right off Strada Nova, and reservations are recommended if not a must. I ordered the monkfish ravioli, and it was the most beautiful pasta I ever saw, striped with seppie and tomato pasta.... More

The Venetian antipasti of raw sea food was really a surprise to me as I didn't expect to eat any raw fish in Venice. The main courses were excellent too. The risotto and seafood were very outstanding. The atmosphere was cozy and warm which is nice to enjoy a happy meal there. Although the distance between each table was a... More

What a wonderful find. In the middle of Venice off the beaten path. Would not have found it if we were not lost (the way to do Venice BTW). The ravioli changed the way I think of Italian food. Stupid good... and priced very fair for the quality.

Seems like a great place, staff friendly . But when you get your bill, they just say 2 appetizers, 2 meals Etc.. Don't know what cost what so please ask . We spend hundreds a night on dinner. It's not the cost for us, it's the feeling of being taken advantage of. Unfortunately we won't be back there ...

Don't expect a formal restaurant, but you will find good dishes at a reasonable price. Situated not very far from Ponte di Rialto (ten minutes walking normally), you must book in advance if you want find a table.

Six of us spent a week in Venice, where we visited numerous restaurant's and this one came out as our all time favourite. We all had starters. a main course and four had a desert from a good but not over long menu. All washed down by a couple of bottles of wine. You do need to make a reservation... More

We went yesterday to Vini da Gigio. The atmosphere is cozy, with a nice view on the canal. The food is extremely good. We had two assorted appetizers (Venetian specialties and sea food assortment). Both were excellent and sufficient for a light lunch. We completed our meal with desserts (an almond creme with toffee and a cup of fresh strawberries... More

This small out of the way restaurant is a gem. Be sure to make a reservation as it fills up quickly. The wine list is extensive and the food excellent. We had the specials of the day for the first and second courses though one of our party had the lamb from the permanent menu which was also wonderful. The... More
